Hi all,

When I originally started this restoration the clamps were all different, with some missing. I'm about to replace upper and lower radiator hoses with correct period replacements, so now is the time to make the clamps correct. Do I use the double wire clamp or the metal band ones? Any help would be appreciated! I've heard so many stories, and most shows and meets I go to never have another '58 in attendance. I'll be doing both radiator and heater core hoses.

Why is it there seem to be so few '58's out there, all of last year I saw only 1 '58 sixty special. I do however see a million '59's.

Thanks, Steve

According to the parts book, 54-58 used the same hose clamp. I know for sure 56 used double wire hose clamps therefor '58 should be the same. Spring rings were used on the heater hoses. HTH.
